Exploration seems like a good idea to me; thanks.

The NTP model is a good one, and is logically related to TZ.

More generally, there's the Internet Systems Consortium, which
hosts the NTP Public Services Project; see
<>.  I presume that we could
start a TZ Public Services Project that would run on similar
grounds.  There is a good connection between ISC's other projects
(notably DHCP) and the TZ database.

I can explore the possibilities there, if this seems
like a good idea to others.
